Green Business Bureau Monthly News for December 2013
|Cheers To A Green 2014!
New Year’s is a time to reflect on the previous year’s achievements while striving for continuous improvement. At the Green Business Bureau we’re committed to helping you set and reach bigger sustainability milestones for the benefit of your business and the planet. We’ve compiled over 400 green initiatives to guide your business regardless of its current sustainability level. For example, consider using only recycled toner cartridges for printing; or sprucing up the office with air filtering plants; or installing high efficiency water fixtures; or adding a hybrid vehicle to your fleet. These are just some of the ways you can make your business more green in 2014!
